Interesting article in the Daytona News-Journal. Anyone living on the Florida coast is noticing the increase in seal level rise.

I expect the usual claptrap from deniers, but the article does go into the science of manmade climate change

Rising sea levels will be affecting property values all over the state and destroying our legacies we leave our heirs. Climate change will be a more critical issue in the years to come.

Florida needs to start voting for elected officials on the local, state and federal level, who will deal with climate change now rather than leave to our children with the consequences.

WAKE UP FLORIDA.

Until the last couple of years, the only time the water would have come over the seawall would have been for a named tropical event or one of the extraordinary nor’easters,” said Henderson, executive director of Stetson University’s Institute of Water and Environmental Resilience. In the fall of 2015 and 2016, he said, “the water came out of the banks on cloudless, breezeless days".

Over the past couple of years in Miami Beach, “on a bright sunny day, the streets would fill with water,” twice a day with the tide, Mowry said. The city’s existing drainage system had created “avenues for water to come right into our city,” he said. Now the city is spending $500 million to hold back the tide and prevent flooding. The city has installed check valves on storm drains, and is building up streets and sidewalks, as well as changing some of its building codes.

And a few days ago, NASA admitted that sea levels were actually NOT rising.

Well, at least deniers living on the coast will drown or at the very least wash away.

Well, according to this (per NASA) sea levels have actually FALLEN the past couple years.

Blog: Media blackout on NASA report that sea level has fallen the last two years

Honestly, it seems once a week or so there are these articles and links posted about the "climate change" and rising sea levels, and even if the levels WERE rising amounts to a fraction of an inch per year. Whatever is the truth, we can't do anything about it anyway.

No, I haven't noticed any difference in sea levels at all in 30 years. What is this "noticing the increase in sea level rise" you speak of? All the spoil islands are still here. The sandbars seem to be about the same as ever. Islands in the keys seem pretty much same as ever. Beaches seem pretty much the same as ever.

Where exactly is all the sea level rise you speak of? And climate change will become more of an issue in the years to come? I think we've been hearing that for decades. According to Al Gore, I think Florida should ALREADY be under water... Lol.

So you say the sea levels are rising and noticeably so.... Let's look at the actual data:

https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sl...?stnid=8724580

Pacing about 8 inches over 100 years. When you start declaring massive sea level rise, 6 feet, we are all underwater and our kids are screwed... you are venturing off into religion and politics. You will notice on the graph it's not accelerating, there is no J-curve. We were supposed to be accelerating out of control already... it's not happening. It's linear and slow.

See here's the thing. EVERYONE recognizes the sea level is rising. Everyone recognizes climate does change. The debate is how much humans have an effect on it, if anything at all.

I was at the Discovery and Science museum yesterday. It was interesting that one exhibit shows what Florida looked like in the past... covered in water!!!

Will Florida go underwater again someday? Sure, probably, maybe... Is it going to happen in 10 years or even anytime soon due to the US backing out of the Climate Agreement? Probably... not.

You may wish to just read the article and the links, the comments on that site can be quite vulgar, although sometimes a commenter will post additional links to expand the data.

IMHO, "global warming" is all about carbon credits and a money making scheme for the likes of Goldman Sachs.

You also might wish to read the book "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton. Published in 2004. While it is a work of fiction, it has extensive scientific references

The graph in your own link shows that the overall trend is sea level rise, just that it is not a straight path of constant upward movement (which is to be expected). Soooooo I guess that kind of defeats your argument (whatever that may be).

If you're quoting this site I wouldn't put any money on it.

Zero Hedge - RationalWiki

Nor any NASA contradictory press releases under this administration.

I also find it hysterical that the climate change agenda is a ruse to keep Al Gore rich. Seriously? How about not addressing it keeps the corporations rich. Which seems more likely, especially if you read slowly and mouth the words?
